Twilight Garden Walk and Sale is June 15

One of my all-time faves is approaching.

The Twilight Walk and Sale at the Allen County Extension is a little more than two weeks away.

Why am I excited? Well, Purdue Master Gardeners offer perennials they have dug from their own gardens or the extension's display gardens. Not only do you know the plants are happy in our neck of the woods, the volunteers will tell you how to plant those little darlings at your own home.

If you are passionate about gardening and want information about how to do it better, this is a wonderful place to get it.

There will be dulcimer music and food on offer. If you haven't checked out the display gardens before, the Twilight event is a fun time to do so.

Bit of advice? Wear bug spray and comfortable shoes. There is always a good selection of plants, but the most popular go quickly.

The Twilight event is at 6 p.m. June 15 at 4001 Crescent Ave. on the IPFW campus. Parking and admission are free, and there is usually a pickup area so you don't have to lug all of those plants all the way over to the parking garage.

Those with plant problems are encouraged to bring samples for a diagnosis from a Master Gardener.

See you there, rain or shine!
